Learn to Play Guitar: From Chords to Fingerpicking + More with a Fun and Uplifting Teacher

The first thing I do before the first day of class is send out an enthusiastic email to introduce myself. We then Briefly discuss the learning goals for the course based on the visual literacy, technical, and intellectual competencies the students would like to achieve by the end of a period through the questionnaire. This is ideal for me to design the course or update an existing course for the student's desired outcomes. The customized syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during our lesson together. I incorporate technology all the time. I'm also inclusive driven because I believe everyone can learn no matter their capabilities or background, I also engage with my students by catering to their interests, and I embrace my dualities and share them with my students.
About Priscilla L.

Hi! I’m Priscilla also known as Ms. P. to my students. I'm a mentor who values a unique and creative approach to learning music, art, and even photography. In my career, I’ve realized the importance of using a variety of teaching techniques catered to a student's learning style. As a mom, I’m witness to how the arts improve development, mood, and imagination. I’m passionate about enriching people’s lives through creativity and thrive on seeing my students grow as they discover their potential. My hope is that you leave each lesson knowing that you are the conductor of your own life. *** Lesson Details *** Services include theory, technique, and performing/exhibiting amongst others. I have an easy-going, yet structured approach that allows each student to achieve results effectively at their own pace. ***Online Details*** During online sessions, if a student is a minor they must have a parent or guardian attend the first session for at least 10-15 minutes to make sure that the technology (online classroom, camera, etc) is functioning and running smoothly. *** Specialties *** In Music: Classical and Gospel, Lofi, Bossa Nova, Jazz, Afrobeats, Reggae, Pop, Rock, Acapella, R&B, Soul, Latin, recitals, auditions, concerts, compositions, music theory. In Photography: Traditional Black and White, Color Photography, Digital Photography, Lightroom, Printing, Exhibitions and more. As a veteran teacher of the School of Rock and M institute in Wash. DC My main goal is and always will be to present students with simplified ways to learn music and the arts and I do so with enthusiasm so that they may flourish in their medium of choice.

Let me start by saying that four years ago, Dr.s told me I'd never sing again because a brain tumor had paralyzed my vocal cords. Fast forward to now...Learning from Priscilla is a great experience. ! I was nervous before our first lesson, but her personality was very warm an inviting. I felt at ease right away. She's very talented and knowledgable of her craft. I can actually see an improvement after the first two lessons.

Mrs. P gets me really excited about learning and I’m excited to see my progress in 3months time. She even picked a song from one of my favorit artist to learn.

Priscila is an outstanding teacher. She combines breathing with singing and writing songs. My daughter has developed confidence and is improving weekly. She makes her comfortable and pushes her wine love and high quality lessons. Priscilla is always friendly, ready and profesional.
